FURTHER THAN THE FURTHEST THING (article first published : 2001-07-7)

“Christ weeps for Tristan, last stronghold of simplicity where now a pagan culture comes on fast, destroying faith and charity” are lines from a poem about the remote island of Tristan da Cunha set in the middle of the Atlantic.

Written in 1949, the poem is by the Reverend Dennis Wilkinson who was posted there as an Anglican priest soon after the Second World War. His granddaughter Zinnie Harris drew on the family’s memories of the time they spent there, to write Further than the Furthest Thing. (See full review in Drama)
